I live in Ohio. Getting cold here... Until I get a remote start system installed, does anyone know how I can start the car, exit and lock the doors so someone can't hop in and drive away? I see no way of doing this.... Seems crazy to me I can't warm up the car without concern...

You could always try turning on your car, exiting with your key and locking the doors. Do it as a test at home to see how far from the car you can go. I don't think the car turns off without a key in the cabin so you should be able to run out, start the car, and run back inside the house with your key.

Thanx for the suggestion Tubeman. Are you suggesting that I use the old-time, physical key to lock the doors after starting and exiting? Hmmm... Didn't try that! I'll try later tonight! Thanx!

I'm still old school so I call all fobs keys, I meant use the fob and take it outside of the car. Cars shouldn't turn off when the fob has been removed from its vicinity. I would know because my friend somehow drove without one and had to Uber back for the spare after turning off her car.

Thanx Tubeman, but the vehicle won't let you lock the doors from outside with the fob while the vehicle is running! It's making me nuts and it's just getting colder and colder... Snows gonna fall soon and I'll need to sit in the vehicle until it's warmed up... Blah!

SOLVED. Ok. Just I case anyone wants to know... Start the vehicle, get out and lock the doors with the physical key (turn counter-clockwise). Doors will indeed lock while it's running. Only caveat is that the fob will no longer unlock the doors... You need the physical key again to unlock. Fob will work normally after this routine...

The physical key method is a pain but better than sitting outside I suppose.
Would that kit work for the C-HR and have you tried it?

$289.99 for a remote start kit isn't too bad, don't automakers charge more than that? If it's proven to work, then it may be a worthy investment or those of you in colder climates.

Just checked out the 12volt solutions installation process on YouTube for the 4runner (chr video isn't available... Although I requested it). Looks incredibly painless and non destructive. You don't even have to open the hood to install. It's all done under dash.
Anyone know anything about this company? I'm seriously considering their product... Just not sure about quality control. A miswired harness could prolly do some significant electrical damage....
Installation pdf can be viewed here... https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/17...69228842735929
